My house, my inspiration - Volume 2


Welcome to part 2 of my house.
This time I'll tour you through my bedroom and workroom. 
Here too I have plenty of nostalgic and sentimental collectibles from here and there. 
Even though they are the back rooms of the apartment, there is no lack of color in them that's for sure :)

So This is the wall by the door of the work room. My little plate collection. The amazing top one is by a talented lady named Fugi. You should look up her work here cause it's AMAZING
The view as you walk into the work room starring my big Dora Kallmus poster. Most of the pictures hanging on the walls in this room are black & white
This is the computer corner. where I drink my coffee in the morning while reading my favorite blogs and catching up on what's new in the world



Nir's school folders on another great shelf made by Hagit from Freckles


The top right picture was painted by my lovely sister in law as a wedding gift. The bottom one was an option for our wedding invitations. It's Nir and I dressed as a bear and bunny. We decided not to use it as we were afraid people won't get the humor. The top left is A post card I love from Mexico. We have this joke that it's a photo of us as well :)



Yet another ship... and a Vietnamese figure from the Laos- Thailand border. I never actually made it to Vietnam  

Our new rug and Nina's new favorite spot



This is the famous photo of the construction workers from the empire state building in NY. I love it so much because it reminds me of one of my favorite cities in the world where I once lived. We found the picture on the street

Welcome to my toy collection and a tip of my shoe collection. The bottom shelf is dedicated the "kid robot" one of my favorite toy designers in the world. They are a bit expensive so every time I go to NY I get one 
A mini Mr. Potato head


When I was a girl I had a "my little pony" collection. I have no idea what I did with it or who I gave it to which makes me kind of sad.. but lately I found some one on "etsy" who was smart enough to keep her collections and sell it online. I had to buy one






I've loved flamingos since I was a little girl. This one my father got me in a crafts market in Capetown

SHOES
My shoe closet












  The master bedroom. The pictures hung on the walls in this room were mostly taken by Nir (except for one) on different trips of ours around the world. We thought that it would be cozy to fill our bedroom with sweet shared memories.

I found this lamp when I was 19 and it's been with me ever since. It moved plenty apartments since

My messy bag collection :)

Scarfs

My jewelery and make-up corner. I found the cabinet about 15 years ago in a vintage shop and it only cost 50 shekels
I keep my head bands (that I barely wear) in a "San bernardus" beer bottle. The little boxes are what all my "Kululush" jewelery came in. now they are used for storage
My jewelery box given to to me as a gift when I was about 8 or 9

The ballerina doesn't spin anymore to the sound of sweet music like it once did but I still love it any ways

I keep old photos of my mom and grandparents up there. and on top is my small Indian/Thai/Chinese temple



 That's it! My house :) It's amazing waking up here in the morning and going to sleep here at night. It certainly is my inspiration.
